Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Sunstone” and “The Movie Vanishes”

Sunstone: In the late 70s, Ed Emshwiller walked into the New York Institute of Technology and said he wanted to make a 3 hour computer graphics film. Once the staff stopped laughing, they told him 3 minutes was more realistic. So Emshwiller collaborated with eventual Pixar founder Alvy Ray Smith and produced this short. (2:55 minutes)

The Movie Vanishes: Can you imagine a world without Toy Story 2? The crew a Pixar can, here’s the story of how it almost came to be. (2:26 minutes)
